our team

Dario Merlos, DDS
I have been practicing dentistry for twenty four years and my home base for eighteen years has been the New Boston Dental Clinic. The best part of being a local community dentist is following the generations of families that come through my door. In 1987 I received my specialized General Dentistry Degree from the University of Detroit Dental School and have been working, learning, and enjoying everything about managing oral health and building smiles.

My wife, Barbara and I were married in ‘85, and adore our two children, Brian and Allison. We relish the rivalry as he is a graduate of U of M and she is a student at Michigan State. I appreciate traveling, gardening, fishing, car shows and family fun days. My philosophy comprises two strong beliefs: when you smile the whole world smiles with you, and you must treat others as you would want to be treated.
